Pretty easy, overall.
Course Overview:
I would definitely recommend this course, namely because it serves as a prerequisite to Calculus, a course necessary for many degrees and majors. This class heavily emphasizes trigonometry in the real world, and is truly enjoyable for those students that take it.
Course highlights:
I learned a great deal of material in this course, namely, trigonometric functions and rations, law of sines and cosines, the unit circle, polar coordinates, vectors, and much much more! I remember being able to take the knowledge from the class and and apply it directly to examples in the real world!
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Study daily, read the book, and go to the teacher's office hours. Too many students try to pull all-nighters before their exams and perform poorly as a result of such. By implementing daily study habits, one is guaranteed to succeed in this class.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I recommend this class if you need math courses. You need this class in order to get into higher math classes. Those of you in math majors, I would definitely recommend this course and professor.
Course highlights:
Math is math, not many highlights. We learned trigonometry and all sorts of fun math stuff!
Hours per week:
9-11 hours
Advice for students:
Use your time to study! The final is cumulative so if you don't study, chances of passing are slim.
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
I wouldn't recommend Mr. Ramirez because he won't help you if you don't get it the first time. He's also a very tough grader, and if you're trying to get great grades, he won't always work with you.
Course highlights:
Highline makes students take PreCalc 2, and at first, it seems like a waste of time. In actuality, it helps you develop your skills for calculus. By being in precalculus two, I felt like I was much better prepared to take on further math classes.
Hours per week:
6-8 hours
Advice for students:
Meet Mr. Ramirez first. Find out what your friends think about him. If you like his teaching style, then go for his class. He's not a bad teacher, but he can be really tough.
